Best radiology for vagus nerve

I suffered a bad neck injury. It appears to have affected the vagus nerve from my neck to my heart.

One doctor stated that MOST bad neck injuries will do that.

What kind of diagnostic test is best to show the condition of the vagus nerve and its affect on my heart?

Thank you.

Re: Best radiology for vagus nerve

I'm wondering why yor doctor didn't suggest you a proper test. However, neurologist (or neurosurgeon), thraumatologist or cardiologist are the right persons to answer that question.

Re: Best radiology for vagus nerve

I have had problems with the vagus nerve that was causing irregular heart beats--- PVCs-- and I have not heard of any test to determine the nerve's condition.
